ESPN Breaks Down Chestnut’s Hot Dog Stomach

Over the fourth of July holiday, Joey Chestnut continued to build on his legacy and perhaps solidify himself as the greatest competitive eater of all-time. The latest feather in his cap was another Nathan’s hot dog eating contest crown, this time taking down 69 dogs in 10 minutes. It’s a truly incredible and frightening figure […]

Athletes need to lose the "chip on their shoulders" already

Athletes need to lose the “chip on their shoulders” already

Spare me, already. The proliferation of tired tropes and cheesy cliches that are so familiar to the sports world are spinning out of control. Writers and reporters are not solely to blame. The players and coaches need to find some more new things to say as well. My favorite (sarcasm) hotness of late? The proverbial […]

Best of the draft: Caliendo's Kiper impression is instant classic

Best of the draft: Caliendo’s Kiper impression is instant classic

I can’t tell you much about Frank Caliendo as a comedian. I saw his skit show once. It was pretty unwatchable. That said, the man has quite a knack for impressions. And we’ve seen him rock some classics from the sports world and noted those dead-on acts previously. In particular, he does a tremendous job […]

Rick Pitino fears no man or thing...except streamers

Rick Pitino fears no man or thing…except streamers

Rick Pitino steered his Louisville Cardinals to a national championship. There were plenty of hurdles along the way, all of which he attacked with signature fearlessness, navigating every roadblock with signature aplomb. It wasn’t until the final horn had blown that Pitino finally showed trepidation. OK, more like he momentarily sh*t his pants in pure […]

Long road back...

Long road back…

It’s been a long road back, my friends. Yes, the Legend has been silent. Zero posts in nearly two weeks. Could be our longest drought ever. Unacceptable. It will be resolved. Just give us some time.

Online gambling site Paddypower.com refunds Pacquiao wagers

Timothy Bradley won a split decision Saturday night against Manny Pacquiao. I didn’t watch the fight, but only caught the highlights and replays. That said, you don’t have to be a boxing aficionado to realize that this outcome smells like sh*t. The result has been universally scoffed at by pundits, promoters and pretty much everyone […]

Pacquiao and Mayweather meet in (animated) bout

It’s the fight everyone’s been waiting for…but may never see come to physical life. Pacquiao. Mayweather. Floyd won’t even see Manny’s weekend fight against Timothy Bradley in jail. All so sad. Fortunately, some industrious and talented men in the Philippineshave made sure we get to see the two men face off — at least in […]

Awesome Beast-Man

Browns Round 1, me likey….I think

    For far too long a time, NFL Draft night has been the best time to be a Browns fan. Hopes and visions of grandeur dominate my thoughts. After one particularly disappointing season in the not so distant past, Draft night was the first time I forgave the Browns and got over the turd […]
